CT Technology continues to advance at a fast pace. During the last few years alone, we have seen the introduction of various multislice scanners, as well as real-time scanning. Technological advances have broadened the range of diagnostic capabilities, drastically shortened scan times and improved patient comfort, resulting in a dramatic increase in application. The number of CT scans performed in the United States has risen from three million per year in 1980 to more than 80 million today. Therefore, radiation exposure is more of a concern than ever before.
